    To see how students across the country really felt about school shootings, we put out an open request for students to send us their thoughts. Here are some of their responses.

    Gun violence, particularly school shootings, ranks among the most contentious issues in America. Since the February 14, 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, mass shootings have again become a staple of the news cycle.

    This school shooting is distinguished from previous ones, because students around the nation have rallied to organize for safer schools. Whether that means stricter gun control, metal detectors, regulating ammunition sales, or arming teachers, remains unclear.

    For more insights, take a look at the national polling of young Americans on gun control: http://bit.ly/2G68EHd

    The polling indicates that while young Americans are divided on gun restriction measures, many are decidedly not fans of the NRA.

    Our criminals already have guns. Banning guns in the US won't be like Europe but it would be more similar to Mexico. Definitely need to up security at school with trained guards. Not teachers with guns.

    This is not ok. It has gotten to the point we’re I am afraid to be at school. Hearing about all these horrible thing going on almost daily has made everyone afraid and something needs to be done. Teachers with guns are just as dangerous as well. The Government needs to stop worrying about teens juuling for a second and worry about gun violence in schools.

    Why are people putting their rights to own guns over the lives of their country's children?
